[VIDEO] The BMW M4 Competition takes on the Audi RS5

One of the most logical comparisons to make is the BMW M4 Competition and the Audi RS5 Coupe. These two have already gone head-to-head, and we have seen that both cars are pretty impressive. Both the M4 Competition and the RS5 are two-door coupes. They both have similarly sized twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engines and eight-speed automatic gearboxes. While looking at the two cars, the BMW M4 Competition has an advantage in terms of power. However, the RS5 copes up for that with a grip advantage. Joe Achilles releases a new video of the BMW M4 Competition and the Audi RS5 Coupe in a drag race. Which car is faster in a straight-line drag race? Check out this video for more details.

Both cars are similar on paper but with each having its advantages. The Audi RS5 Coupe uses a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 making 444 horsepower in the same eight-speed auto gearbox. It is also in Quattro all-wheel-drive, reaching 60 mph in under four seconds. Moreover, the M4 Competition uses a 3.0 liter twin-turbo I6 with 503 horsepower and an eight-speed auto gearbox. It is also in the rear-wheel-drive. The RS5 seen in this video has a tire disadvantage as it was just a second hand. Achilles puts them side by side to find out which is the quickest.

Joe puts both the M4 Competition and the RS5 through a small handling circuit to find out which is quicker and better to drive. He tests both on a drag strip in three runs to see which one is faster in a straight line. It is a bit surprising to see the results in both tests. The Audi RS5 has more traction and pretty good to drive. While the BMW M4 is more powerful and a more driver-focused car than the RS5.
